It’s Valentine’s Day in a few days and we’re getting in the mood here at the office! Candy is everywhere and we decided to find simple and cute ways to give candy to our co-workers–of course, this will work for sharing with anyone!
- Cardstock (in multiple colors of your choice)
- Single hole punch
- Ribbon or twine
- Decorative paper, lace, etc. (optional)
- Glue (if you use optional decorative paper above)
Fold a square piece of cardstock in half vertically and unfold. Then fold horizontally. Create strong creases in both instances.
With the cardstock folded in half horizontally, cut the top of a heart on each side of the vertical fold line.
Unfold and it should look like this:
Decorate as you see fit!
Grab opposite sides of the cardstock and pull together (one of the two major fold lines will naturally go together easier).
Where the cardstock meets, punch a hole completely through.
Insert ribbon or twine all the way through. Make the ribbon as long as you’d like and tie at the top. (You may need to wrap through twice for extra support depending on the strength of your paper and weight of the candy used.)
Hang on a door, add candy, and surprise a special someone!
